DW's name: Hope Cara Dawson
DH's name: Jack Thomas Dawson
Year of marriage: 2015
2016: (10) They get a kitten and a puppy! After a year of marriage Hope and Jack are still very much enjoying time with just the two of them, and don't yet feel ready to have a family, but they definitely feel as though their home is a bit lonely and could do with some extra love. They decide to get both a kitten and a puppy. The kitten is white and grey and named Molly, their dog is a husky cross named Odin.
2017: (1) A year after the new arrivals in the family, Hope and Jack decide to move into a new, bigger house. Their old house was starting to feel cramped, even with just the 2 of them and the pets, so they decide to move further into the country where they can afford a larger house, with a beautiful garden. It seems like the ideal home for starting a family in too. This is what it looks like:
2018: (10) After moving into the new house, Hope and Jack enjoy decorating it and making it feel like a proper home. They decide that the spare room would make a perfect nursery, and finally feel ready to have their first baby. After 3 months of trying, Hope becomes pregnant. 9 months later they have a beautiful baby boy named Tobias Jack Dawson "Toby".
2019: (1) When Toby is only 6 months old, their perfect home starts to feel not so perfect. The house needs a lot of work doing, and seems to be falling apart, and having Toby means neither Hope nor Jack have much time to spend fixing it up. With the help of Hope's parents, they buy a much newer built house that is in perfect condition. It looks like this:
2020: (2) Just before Toby's second birthday, Hope finds out she's pregnant again! They weren't trying, but are delighted by the surprise. They have plenty of room for another little one, and are excited to give Toby a sibling. 9 months later they have a little girl named Mabel Sophia Dawson.
2021: (5) When Mabel is 5 months, and Toby 3, Jack is offered a role at a very prestigious accountancy firm, the only catch is, that it's another city. Jack would be working full time and doesn't feel happy leaving the children back in another city with Hope, nor does he think it'd be feasible to travel between the two, even just for the weekends. So after much discussion, the family move to a new city; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They're both upset to be moving house yet again, especially when the last house seemed so perfect for them, but Jack's career is very important to him, and Hope is very proud of him. This is their new house:
2022: (6) Hope and Jack are very settled in their new home and Jack is getting on well at work, whilst Hope is still a SAHM to 2 year old Mabel and 4 year old Toby. About once a week, Jack and Hope have a date night, where they get some much needed time together, whilst a local girl, 18 year old Hayley, looks after the kids for the evening. One night they return home to find Hayley in tears, Hope comforts her and asks her what's wrong, whilst Hayley confides in her that she found out she's pregnant. She immediately says she can't keep the baby and blurts out that she wishes the baby could stay with Hope and Jack, as she's seen what wonderful parents they are, and knows that she couldn't offer the baby a stable lifestyle. They have very serious conversations for months after this, including Hayley's parents, and everyone agrees that the baby would be best with Hope and Jack, as Hayley has big plans for college. Hope and Jack are shocked that Hayley really wants to give them her baby, but they're delighted she trusts them so much, and are thrilled to be able to give the baby a loving home, and Mabel and Toby another sibling. Hayley gives birth to a baby girl, and Hope and Jack welcome little Nancy Anabel Dawson into their family.
2023: (4) Nancy settles perfectly into the family, and Mabel and Toby love her to pieces. When she is 7 months old, the whole family go away for a few days to visit both Hope and Jack's parents. When they return Hope is very sick, putting it down to having eaten something bad whilst away, or just the stress of travelling, she tries to ignore it. But when she's still feeling just as bad, if not worse, even a week later, Jack forces her to go to the doctor. A test immediately confirms she's pregnant, but she never felt so ill with her other pregnancies! The doctors send her for an early scan, just to make sure everything is ok because of how ill she's been feeling. At 9 weeks pregnant, Hope finds out she is expecting twins! Jack and Hope are shocked, having twins with such a small baby around is definitely going to be hard work, but they feel very lucky to be having twins! Hope gives birth to twin boys named Max Oscar Dawson & Joel Leo Dawson.
2024: (8) Toby is now 6, Mabel 4, Nancy 2 and the twins are just 6 months, when Hope misses a period. She had been feeling very run down recently, but put that down to having 3 small children to take care of, but a home pregnancy test quickly confirms her suspicions. She's pregnant again! For once, Hope is actually quite scared to tell Jack, they already have 5 children and he's been stressed with work as it is, but she knows she can't hide it from him. But as soon as she tells him, her fears disappear, he doesn't even show a sign of disappointment and is ecstatic to be welcoming another little life into their family. Their first scan reveals that they're having not one, but two babies again! Although born 2 months early, they have 2 healthy baby girls, named Lola Lorelei Dawson & Josephine Iris Dawson "Effie".
2025: (6) One day whilst Jack is at work and Hope is at home with Nancy, Max, Joel, Lola & Effie, the phone rings, it's Hayley. Hope is immediately panicked by the desperation in Hayley's voice as she says that she needs to meet up with her. Hope wonders if she's wanting to meet Nancy and has a sinking feeling that she's going to tell her something crazy like she regrets ever giving up her baby girl. Hayley is back from college for the summer, so she and Hope arrange to meet up for a coffee when Jack is home from work to look after the kids. She can tell that Hayley has been crying the moment she sees her, Hope asks what's wrong and all Hayley says is "I need my baby to be with its big sister", "you're pregnant?!" questions Hope. Hayley nods and the tears begin streaming again. Hope is shocked and wants to ask Hayley how it happened, but feels perhaps Hayley won't want to talk about it whilst she's this distraught. Hayley opens up to her anyway, confiding that she met someone at college who she had an on-off relationship with for a couple of months, he was abusive and she's too scared to tell him she's pregnant. Hope and Jack talk, and agree to adopt Hayley's second baby. This time she has a boy, he looks just like Nancy, they name him Harry Casper Dawson.
2026: (10) Hope and Jack are sure they're done having children now that they have 8! When Harry turns one, they decide to have a big holiday and take the whole family travelling, along with the grandparents, for a month.
